Mohammad Kaif burst out to the scene back in 2000 when he led the India under-19 team to a world cup victory. The Uttar Pradesh batsman made his International debut soon after that. He became a regular feature in the national team in the early 2000s. Kaif established himself as one of the key members of the side due to his ability to bat in the middle and lower order. Additionally, he was an exceptional fielder and the catches he took were breathtaking.
The widespread outbreak of coronavirus had forced the Indian government to take steps to restrict the movement of the citizens in the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced that the country will have a 21-day lockdown to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

In fact, Mohammad Kaif did not out and scored 87 runs in that match to take India home to a historic victory. He played his last game for India in 2006.
The 39-year-old had played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs before he was dropped the squad due to inconsistent performance. After that, he continued playing for the Uttar Pradesh domestic side. He made valuable contributions to the side’s performance during that period.

He was the assistant coach of Delhi capitals in the last season of the IPL. Previously, he was also the assistant coach of the now-defunct Gujarat lions in the IPL.
